    CO2 extinguishers and filling in Melbourne?

    Not sure if they sell them to you, but I get mine filled at United Fire Equipment Services in Moorabbin, it's the only place I could find. Wish there was somewhere further north. It's cheap though. Just make sure you give them a call to ask what days they run the compressor otherwise you...

    Super Aroma - Hop Shots

    Haha yeah, I saw the description about gooseberry and thought there had been a mix-up, as you did mention Mosaic would be called Magnifico.

    Super Aroma - Hop Shots

    Yeah, plan was to put it into the keg but I need to bottle a few from the fermenter for the comp. I'll just move the whole thing into the keg then fill some bottles via keezer tap and hose before I carb it. 4ml it is, will report back.

    Super Aroma - Hop Shots

    Alright, so I've got a pale ready to crash chill and keg. I haven't added any dry hops and plan to use all Victory. I usually do this up at 3g/L dry hop. Do you reckon I go 4ml or venture up to 5ml? I want to bottle a few up before I keg to enter into Beerfest next month so I don't want to...

    Knurling on a Mashmaster Mini Mill

    Aha. I had sent it to a different email address that I used to contact him last year. Sent to the above and got a reply within minutes! He's going to send me a single fluted roller as they don't have full sets right now, but he reckons a fluted/knurled combo works just fine so I'm happy with...

    Knurling on a Mashmaster Mini Mill

    I emailed Mashmaster yesterday but no reply as yet. He did say when I contacted him back in June that they would send replacement rollers out to those with duds once they got them.

    Monosodium Glutamate Thread

    Haha, woah! I missed that. And yeah, moderation is always wise, of course. I'm not gonna go snorting the stuff just yet.

    Monosodium Glutamate Thread

    That's a bit misleading, technobabble. The wiki article goes on to say: "Excitotoxicity may be involved in spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury, hearing loss (through noise overexposure or ototoxicity) and in neurodegenerative diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) such as...

    QldKev's New Biab With Internal Rims

    I have a whirlpool return. The bottom of my basket is a commercial false bottom that has shitloads of holes so I don't think drainage is the issue. I always use rice hulls now and it flows beautifully, so I think the main issue with me is crush. I can't get a good crush right now because the...

    QldKev's New Biab With Internal Rims

    It's called Aeroflex and I got it from eBay. It's not particularly cheap. Also it tears pretty easily so I need to be careful with it. I glued it to the side of the kettle with Kwik Grip wallpaper glue.

    QldKev's New Biab With Internal Rims

    I've done the same thing. I built a frame out of some square tube and brackets, and to the pot I riveted on some flat hooks that I cut off some tea towel holders from bunnings. Here is an old photo of it from my original non-recirculating setup: The handle is made from stainless rope with...

    Monosodium Glutamate Thread

    Here's an image that shows the production process of MSG. It might remind you of another process you're familiar with.

    Berliner Weisse starter?

    I'm having my first crack at kettle souring at the moment. I put a vial of WLP672 straight into 25 litres. I'm keeping it at 35 degrees at the moment. White Labs give the temp range as 21-35 but I feel like it'll be too slow if I keep it much cooler. Does anyone have experience using a...

    Monosodium Glutamate Thread

    It almost seems as though the most common perception now is that a compound is either 'natural' or a 'chemical'. Even accepting that this is just a clumsy way of differentiating between something found in nature versus something exiting a factory, holding the idea that one compound can be...

    Protein Rest - What Is It And Is It Handy?

    Just to clarify, beta-glucans are polysaccharides, not proteins. At protein rest temperatures, you have proteolytic enzymes working on protein and beta-glucanases working on beta-glucans. Targeting long proteins is for improving haze & head retention, while for beta glucans it's gummy mashes.

    Naming your home brewery

    The Gary Busey Brewing Company. No idea why, but it rolls off the tongue and his head looks good on a beer bottle.

    What did you buy while pissed last night?

    I went to the Melbourne salami festival after a long afternoon at Carwyn, bought salami and expensive pâté, returned home with no salami, no pâté and no bankcard. No idea.
